Keep Your Stock Up Prices Easy To Find
Track Prices with Products
We keep our raisins and oatmeal in previously bought containers and just keep refilling them. I could never remember what price I paid for them since I buy them in bulk, so I started writing the price I paid and place I bought it at on the lids with a sharpie marker. I even included the date purchased.
As I tracked this information, I quickly learned that just because Martin’s has raisins for $1.39/lb one week, doesn’t mean they’ll be the cheapest next week!
I thought their price would always be the same, but not true!
I saw them for as much as $1.99/lb one time, so I checked Glennwood and Sharp Shopper and found them to be cheaper that week. It pays to keep track of these things!

There are many places to download/print stock up spreadsheets online. Here are a few I found:
